For Employees

Who can use FSAP?

WVU FSAP is available to all active and retired administrators, faculty and staff and their dependents.  Additionally, University departments/units may request workshops/training/coaching on specific topics.

How do I use FSAP?

You may call the FSAP office for information or to make an appointment.  A counselor will meet with you to discuss your concerns and to provide an initial assessment of problems areas.  You and your counselor will then discuss a range of options and together determine a course of action.

What does it cost?

FSAP is free of charge.  Each employee or dependent may schedule up to three visits with an FSAP counselor per year.  If you require more extensive services, we will help refer you to an outside provider.  If such a referral is necessary, other services may be covered, all or in part, by your health insurance.  Please contact the WVU Benefits Office if you have specific questions about your insurance coverage.

Will this be confidential?

Your right to privacy is one of the most critical concerns of FSAP.  All services are provided on a strictly confidential basis, unless otherwise required by law.  Even if your supervisor encourages you to use the program, no information about the nature of your problem is ever released without your written consent.  Using FSAP in no way jeopardizes your job security.

How long does an appointment last?

Your appointment will last approximately one hour.
